Hello there bloggies. These interesting times keep going on and despite the fact that many are currently not able to work – I find that I’ve never been busier. Hence that’s why this blog orbit is late in arriving. Very late in fact, I like to get these out on day 1 or at least in the first few days – however time has crept up on me and here we are mid May!

Just as last month – I promise I won’t mention the virus.

What’s been going on though? Have I done anything since the last Blog Orbit. Actually yes.

I even managed to write something original – this month’s Blog Battle story was brooch. I will admit this this had me thinking for quite some time. But I came up with what I think was something quite different with some people being kind enough to say they wanted to read more:

Larissa’s Stone – A Blog Battle Story

Off the back of the ending of Star Trek Picard, I had a thought. Of course it’s at least at this time in humanity’s development pretty pointless but noneless I asked the question of where consciousness resides in our brain and can it be duplicated?

Sci-fi Concepts – Where does Consciousness reside and can it be cloned?

I also had some thought son the latest film in the Alien series. Something that seems to prevail in the SciFi films coming out right now is trying to capitalise on classic films with badly done sequels / prequels and this unfortunately very much the same.

After Prometheus and what I thought was a good film that could have led to something really interesting Covenant could have been so much more.
Alien Covenant – A Sci-Fi film that could have been more

There were one or two others, I’ve been creating a little but not a lot and it’s really bothering me now. But have a look at this. Image overlays from some of my sunet images with some NASA images to create something.

Image Overlays – Saturn at Sunset

I hope you’re all keeping well though, summer is pretty much here in the UK and it’s been nice to see. What’s it like where you are? Are you keeping good with it all?

I’m trying to keep up with as many of you good people as I can. If you think you’re being missed give us a wave and if you’re not coping don’t suffer alone. I hope that maybe I can be about in the following weeks but that’s not certain and I have so many things to do that are on hold right now.

When I get to them I promise I’ll share them.

Keep smiling and writing.

      1. We’re the same pretty much but things are going to open up more in the next couple of weeks.
        I think there’s only protests in the States – is that right?
        Keep good and I’ll make sure I look through your blog 🙂♥️

      2. Thank you Simon, and I will look through your blog too.
        Yes, just the states are protesting but there are marches in Berlin and London in support of murdered protesters in the states.

      3. Thanks I hope you like it – let me know.
        It’s good to see the world getting behind the protesters I think. The world is changing fast…

  1. So good to see you on here and to read another great story. I feel that most sci-fi’s start down an interesting path and then falls off a cliff. I’m always left wanting a little more

      1. I have no doubts they will keep in doing so Simon.👍.
        Yeah, good thanks Simon. Pleased with Vol III of the trilogy, using Word’s “Review” + “Read Aloud” as an editorial aid, both useful and weird at the same time 😃

  2. you do sound super busy and full of creativity, good for you!

    As your summer unfolds our winter closes in … had some very chilly winds and wet days but today is looking cheerfully sunny 🙂


  3. My husband signed up for the free trial of CBS All Access to binge Picard and the new Twilight Zone. Picard was pretty good, albeit slightly predictable. I liked the new Twilight Zone for the most part. We are doing well here in Virginia. We are blessed to still have our jobs and able to work from home, so we’re not financially strapped and super stressed like several of our friends. I miss going to the movie theater and my women’s group meetings, but I’ve pretty much adapted to (and actually enjoying) being at home. It’s going to be interesting when we return to our offices. We’ve also saved a bunch of money because we’re not driving as much, so we’re not buying a ton of gas and not paying our twice-daily tolls!

    1. I didn’t know there was a new Twilight Zone out – over here Picard was on Amazon. It’s good to hear you’re ok – I would have saved a load o money too but I’ve had to have things done on the cars… but at least it could be done.
      Keep well and see you about 🙂


  4. As a Star Trek fan,I’m looking forward to seeing Pickard. Unfortunately I only have Netflix and I’m not sure if it’s coming to that platform. It would be nice to see all the old cast again, although upset about Data! I guess no amount of make up could keep the actor of Data looking like his android self. I hope you’re well and looking forward to hearing about your plans 🙂

    1. It’s well worth the watch and I won’t spoil a single detail for you. If I could find a way to copy it and send it to you I would as it’s only on Amazon.
      I’m well thanks, hope you are and I’ll keep things coming on here as I can 🙂
      Thanks for stopping by.
